  1. #1 No external monitoring 
    Weapon 6k CF with the gold plate battery expander.

    I am having a problem; I am getting no video signal from HDMI or SDI for external monitoring. The outputs are selected in the menu. I have done a firmware upgrade and reset.

    Hi Daryl,

    Craig here,

    Sounds like your rear expander is bust or the brain's pins are bust.

    My phone is not working ATM but if you are desperate for a quick response, you can email me here:

    You're welcome to use my V Lock IO Expander and a Peli of V Locks / can take my Epic-W brain as a backup as it's not on a rental this weekend or next week so all good. I live in SW London between Tooting Broadway & Earlsfield.

    yeah, sounds hardware related. Try taking off the base expander and re-mount it. On of chance that that will work, but likely if there's no signal at all something's fried....
